I am going to watch the 9-11 special and the memorial live on TV that day.
30% of me says that I will skip school to watch these 9-11 documentaries and reports. I wonder how the guys at the ARTCC's will do with the thousands of planes flying on that day?
I too will pray on behalf of the victims.
It is going to be a rather interesting day when it arrives in 11 days.
How the world will react 1 year after this event.

Same thing I did last year. Go to work, check newssites a few times over the day. Go home, maybe do some shopping. Make dinner, browse the net a bit. Go to bed and wake up the next morning.
It's not as if it's some mythical date guys. Nothing sacred about a date, even if a lot of people died in a terrorist attack on that date some time ago.
If you just sit there staring and grieving on any date anyone ever died due to unnatural causes, you'll do that every single day for the rest of your lives.
More people died on a single day in WW1 or WW2 than died on 11 Sept. 2001 in those terrorist attacks...

I am absolutely trying to get out of the country at least for 2 or 3 days. I can't stand the build up tv is already giving us - its like we're getting ready for the SuperBowl or something, its sickens me. I've heard there will be non-stop no commercial TV 'coverage' of whatever ceremonies will take place and no doubt a lot of politicians running their mouths. I understand those personally affected need this but turning it into the media event of the year is disturbing. I prefer to keep my thoughts to myself, remember the event and honor it in my own way. I've been looking into Saint Lucia myself - it looks really nice and I haven't been there.

Go to work as usual. Probably have a few quiet moments of reflection, but I've done that quite a few times over the last year. It's just a date one year on, it won't change anything. I will watch some of the coverage on TV. Apart from that, just normal everyday.. I'll be flying on the 14 Sept.

Yup, I won't be doing much.. Sure, the media will remind me of what had happened a year ago that day, but I won't go out of my way to do anything special. I'll think about what happened, and what I felt, and what everybody else felt (I had this urge to go to war, something this shouldn't go un-punished, its funny what anger does to your mind...). But I won't be going too deep..

Some of you will think I'm nuts for this, but, I will go to a site on the internet that has the archives from TV's stations covering the tragedy form that day. Why? I don't ever want to forget what happened that day. Yes, I know what happened, but I want to feel those emotions. I don't ever want to forget what those bastards tried to take from us. I know that they haven't. But there are 3,000+ people who are no longer with us. Fathers, mothers, wives, husbands, firends, brothers & sisters. To put off the events of that day as of less importance just because it is one year later is a travesty. I for one want to remember that. Along with the brief time that the world came together.
Osama, if your out there still,... look, you haven't changed us a bit. Yea, you took 3,000+ loved ones away. You knocked down three landmarks. But you didn't do what you set out to do. I'd tell you to go to hell, but I somehow believe you already got a personal invitation from satan himself.

I am going to fly to New York from PHX the evening of the 10th. Arrive JFK early morning around 6AM. And make sure I am at the WTC by 8:45AM. I plan on flying home that day around 4PM out of EWR on the 777 as well! Should be a very difficult day for those of us who lost friends and family. I am not looking forward to it. But I feel I need to be there.
